Just saw your post on the Mak. This noise is from the silent system, which works on tension. This should not cause an anti-reverse failure and it is a very easy adjustment. If you contact Daniel Ramos at (909) 467-8113 we will send a call tag so the reel can be repaired at no cost to you. Also if you get us your shirt sizing, we will send out an Okuma shirt for your inconvenience.
